In 2014, The Vintage Sparrow grew into an inspiring jewelry line that carried the mission to awaken courage within the heart of women all over the globe. It all began when Founder, Annie Moss, was raising funds to go on a mission trip to Kenya, East Africa. After Annie returned from Africa, she found that people continued to want her creative jewelry designs and so The Vintage Sparrow was born.
In 2015, Annie felt a strong notion that The Vintage Sparrow would one day be a company that would employ and inspire women that were looking for a place to flourish in their own unique gifts and talents, while launching them into their own dreams and destiny.
In 2016, Annie’s vision of employing and empowering women became a reality. The Vintage Sparrow began to grow as a team of women that set out with one purpose- to create designs that would awaken courage within the heart of women all over the globe.
In 2017, as a team, The Vintage Sparrow began to thrive and make global impact in the hearts of women through the power of words on every piece of jewelry they created and sent out.
To this day, The Vintage Sparrow is committed to impacting the lives and hearts of women through the power of words. Whether that be through a customer who receives a design or the staff who creates it. Annie’s heart will always remain- to see women flourish in their own God-given identity and purpose. The Vintage Sparrow is committed to creating designs that remind women to fully walk in all they are called to be.
Believe it or not, our founder's story starts in the most magical place on earth...Disney World! When Jess was in college, she decided to take an internship in Disney World as a photographer.
When she was there, she got to photograph so many sweet kids that were there on their wish from various wish-granting organizations for kids with life-threatening illnesses. When she returned to school her sophomore year, she decided to intern for a wish-granting organization. When she was there, Jess noticed a lot of kids wearing headbands after losing their hair to chemotherapy.
One girl in particular wished to go to Disney World to meet Sleeping Beauty, but was unfortunately too sick to travel to Florida from North Carolina.
So Jess went to a costume shop and arrived on her doorstep dressed as Sleeping Beauty...
After that experience, Jess felt this spark to do something to help these kids feel confident and beautiful during such a tough time. She remembered the trend of patients wearing headbands and discovered no one was providing those accessories to the kids.
To fulfill this need, Jess created Headbands of Hope during her junior year of college at North Carolina State University.
FOR EVERY HEADBAND SHE'D SELL, SHE'D DONATE A HEADBAND TO A CHILD WITH CANCER.
Jess had no idea what she was doing starting a business. She was a Communications major with a minor in Spanish (don't test her on the Spanish) but she was determined to launch this business. She even recruited a graphic design student to help teach her photoshop every day at lunch and Jess paid her in Chipotle burritos (seriously).
At the end of her junior year on April 25th, 2012 at 9:47 a.m., Jess got her first order on her website...from her mom.
Luckily, things picked up and now Headbands of Hope is carried in thousands of stores across the world and has been supported by dozens of celebrities like Lea Michele, Lauren Conrad, Kelsea Ballerini and they even do headbands for NBA teams like the Dallas Mavericks and Milwaukee Bucks.
But more importantly, the brand has donated headbands to every children's hospital in America and 15 countries.
Now in 2020 we have decided to extend our mission to extend to all children with illnesses, not just cancer.
Cassandra's Review- The necklaces are pretty and well made. Not extravagant but mindful and easy to use. The head band is stylish and fit nicely. There are great options on the site, so you should be able to pick the perfect style or inspiration for you.
